these folks voted in local elections. that doesn't matter. because the governor came in with the strength of the state legislator and said, you know what, we're going to erase your vote. so actually, the last election these people were participating in, it was kind of a conditional thing. you know, if the numbers didn't work out, we're not going to give a damn how you voted. that's basically what has unfolded here. emergency city manager, kevin orr, will now take complete control of detroit. earlier today, the mayor, dave bing, said that it's a sad day for workers in detroit and the city. >> it's very, very important, i think, that we respect the fact that the emergency manager has the key to the city at this point in time. i know there are a lot of people that are upset, that are concerned about their futures. but we are now starting from square one. it's a process that i think we need to take a lot of care, because there's going to be pain for a lot of different people. but in the long run, i think the future of the city will be bright. >> i offer to you tonight, this is unnecessary pai

was the first democratic election in south africa five years later. i was there when the country's black majority voted by the millions, waiting in lines that stretched from one horizon to the other. i saw first hand the devotion to democracy. it was the great legacy of the man who died today. president obama paid tribute to nelson mandela today. through his fierce dignity and unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others i moved all of us. he embodied the promise that human beings and countries can change for the better. his commitment to transfer power and reconcile those who jailed him set an example for all to aspire to, whether in the lives of nations or in our own personal lives. >>> i promised you the president of the united states. and he's here. let's play "hardball." >> it's my honor to introduce the president of the united states.

" is why bill de blasio was elected. the tale of two cities as he put it. a lot of it, steve you have some charts here -- goes to affordable housing. so many elements to this story. it's not a new york city story it's a national story. mika said one in five american children live in poverty. >> it's a national story. what you have are a number of things that come together to create it. you had this terrible recession. you have the rising income equality which is fine for wealthy people to get wealthier but the people at the bottom have gotten poorer. you have reduction in food stamps. the average food stamp income has gone from $33 to $25 as part of this. you got a discussion about the minimum wage. >> you can't live on it. >> there's a whole bunch of things that come together in a perfect storm for people at the bottom and so they feel very picked upon and i think rightly so. >> joe, you would agree you got to make work pay in order to get people network. asking people to work for something they can't afford to support their family on that's not really how welfare reform works. >> i agree

is the website going to play in the 2014 election cycle but we forget that many congressional hopefuls and incumbent members are already running for re-election or running to be elected. how is the website rollout and politics of obama care in general, how is that playing on the ground already? >> it's playing very differently depending on where you are. i'll give you two examples. you probably heard about kentucky where the website is going really well. i know the new york times and "washington post" talked about that a lot. if you go to kentucky, what you hear is that mitch mcconnell is still loud and proud saying we should repeal obama care. and the democratic candidate there running and her name is allison grimes. so far even though kentucky has a good website, she is still very weary of this law. her view is still obama care not going to help you win in kentucky. on the other hand in florida, you have charlie crist, now a democrat, running for governor there. he made one of his big issues the medicate expansion which is popular. florida has not allowed the medicaid expansion. and

trying to kill the thing. from the day obama was elected president, republicans have been determined to block health care reform. they got scott brown elected. they took the law all the way to the supreme court, voted dozens of times to defund or repeal it, shut down the government for 16 days, and obama care survived all of it. irony is that while republicans couldn't kill obama care, the administration almost could. >> good evening. president obama now finds himself compared to president george w. bush, as in the problems with the health care plan have become president obama's katrina. >> but today, the website is now fixed enough that it looks like obama care is really here to stay. the repeal strategy is dead and obama care is out of the icu. according to the administration, the error message rate for the front end of the website is less than 1%. that's down from about 6% last month. the site can now handle 50,000 users at a time, 800,000 per day. keep in mind, at one point, the site could handle only about 1,000 users at a time. >> this website is and will function effectively f
